Summary

Research in Politics and International Relations explores the theory, practice and ethics of politics and governance.

We cover a broad area of expertise, from local policy to global governance, political theory to empirical studies, constructivism to rational choice approaches.

Our Politics & International Relations group has close links with cross-disciplinary and internationally recognised research centres.

Major research focuses include:

- sub-state and supranational dimensions of politics and public policy

- the impact of devolution in the UK and elsewhere, and the constitution and governance of the European Union

- international politics: changing relations, the new security agenda, transatlantic relations, political economy, migration politics and global governance

- nationalism, democratic transition, civil society and institution-building

- health, welfare, environment, competition, migrations and citizenship, and equal opportunities policies

- political theory, especially war ethics, environmental ethics and theories of freedom
